When it comes to sporting memorabilia our sales are full of fascinating finds, from match day programmes, fishing rods, golf clubs to racing silks, and all attracting interest from around the world. We’ve sold memorabilia from across the sporting spectrum from boxing, football and rugby to golf and cricket.
From single items to collections David Hunter is our expert valuer. One of his highlights was to sell a collection belonging to Mike Hailwood, rated ‘the greatest motorcyclist who ever lived’, which included trophies, books and prints and with individual lots fetching from 10s of pounds to hundreds.
From the world of speed to the world of quiet contemplation and fishing, the modern and vintage attract buyers. For instance fishing rods by Alcock and Hardy with two vintage Hardy fly fishing reels, Featherweight and Viscount, making £75 in a recent sale. Fishing flies and similar lures and fishing priests are also popular.
Proving that well-made items fare well at auction, we were delighted with a result of £100 for two vintage handmade leather Falcon hoods with feather decorations.
We produce an illustrated online catalogue and our online marketing can match the most particular of collectors with the very item they have been on the lookout for years.
